Gelli print plate and Dry Embossing

Hello Everyone, 
Shilpa here, 
I am continuing the journey with Gelli plate and sharing today's project with you,  it is a Mixed Media Canvas.

Have you noticed wonderful hearts ...yes I've made them with my Gelli plate.
Let's see the process.

I used Distress paints- Worn Lipstick, Evergreen Bough and Hobby Ideas Golden yellow color for this. As you will see I have just taken few drops from each bottle.

I used my Brayer and rolled it on Gelli plate. I did not mix the colors a lot.

I kept Prima Bubble stencil (12*12) onto Gelli plate, kept the paper on it , burnished it with my hands and got this fab print. I did not want to stop there, as I had some more paint on my Gelli Plate.

I took out this print on same paper, after removing Bubble stencil from Gelli plate...ohh I am loving this.

I decided to use my Gelli plate print as a embellishment. I could cut out so many hearts with one print!

 I wanted to bring texture on these hearts (my regular blog readers know my obsession with all kinds of texture) I put the hearts in embossing folder ...and I got textured hearts with layers of colors.
Do you like it?

Thanks so much for stopping by today.....always looking forward to read your feedback.
Stay tuned for my next post in this Gelli plate printing series.
